On TLC’s new dating show, Married By Mom and Dad, singles are putting their romantic lives in their parents’ hands, and it’s just as awkward as you might imagine.
In this exclusive clip, Mitchell’s parents are interviewing a potential suitor for their son, and Dad doesn’t waste any time getting to the important stuff.
“Let’s talk about sexual compatibility,” the father asks as Mom and the date giggle uncomfortably at the “awkward” question. “It’s important. Sexual incompatibility is a deal-breaker. It’s a disadvantage for both you and Mitchell if you don’t know each other’s expectations.”
“What do I say?” the date laughs to herself in a one-on-one interview. “I don’t know. Do you want, like, details? I think it would make them more uncomfortable than me.”
Ultimately, she plays it off diplomatically when Mitchell’s dad continues to ask about her “sexual expectations in a marriage,” chalking the question up to compatibility.
“I just want to have chemistry with the person,” she says. “You really can tell whether you have chemistry with a person before you’re actually physical.”
TLC's Married By Mom and Dad airs Sunday nights at 10 p.m. ET.
